Albany- More money could be on the way to the city's account coming from Water, Gas and Light.

WG&L already pays the city $6.5 million dollars a year. Tuesday night, the city commissioners agreed on a policy to collect an estimated $750,000 they feel should also come to the city.

"The $750,000 is a collection of monies that are at Water, Gas & Light through late payments, penalties, also investments," said Lemuel Edwards, Interim City Manger.

The Water, Gas and Light Commission must also approve the proposal.
